In the first hour we will discuss some of the classic literature on walking which is vast and varied. This literature is often expressed in metaphoric prose that invites the reader to share the experiences of the walker. In the second hour we will talk about our experiences of walking as we explore some of the trails in the U of M Botanical Gardens. We will focus our walking in the Formal Gardens and the Botanical Gardens. These areas are accessible to wheel chairs, walkers, and cane users. *In the event of inclement weather, we will continue our walking and talking in the Conservatory. For the first session, read Thoreau’s essay on Walking which is available online. Text: Frederic Gros, A Philosophy of Walking; available at Book Bound - 1729 Plymouth Road. The Study Group for those 50 and over is led by Larry Berlin & John Rowntree and held Wednesdays May 6 through May 27.
